Rashida Tlaib: Boycott Bill Maher for Opposing BDS

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) has now turned her guns on HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher for daring to criticize the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement as a hateful anti-Israel political sentiment with little or no goal beyond the destruction of the Jewish state.

“Maybe folks should boycott his show,” Tlaib tweeted, according to Deadline. “I am tired of folks discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom. This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa. It didn’t work then and it won’t now.”

On Friday, Maher pivoted his criticism away from Trump and conservatives and toward Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) for supporting the BDS movement. His attack came shortly after the pair were barred from entering Israel for having an agenda entirely in opposition to the country’s existence.

“It’s a bulls*** purity test, BDS is a bulls*** purity test by people who want to appear ‘woke’ but actually slept through history class,” Maher said. “It’s predicated on this notion — I think, it’s very shallow thinking — that the Jews in Israel are mostly white and Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct and the Jews must be wrong. As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this ‘completely peaceful people’ found themselves occupied. Forget about the intifadas and the suicide bombings and the rockets and how many wars.” . . .

“Congresswoman Omar has said things like, ‘It’s all about the Benjamins,’ ‘Israel has hypnotized the world,’ ‘May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,'” Maher said. “She apologized for it, but it’s out there: Jews control the world, control the money.” (Read more from “Rashida Tlaib: Boycott Bill Maher for Opposing BDS” HERE)

Suicide Bombing at Wedding; 63 Dead, Over 180 Injured

At approximately 10:40 p.m. local time on Saturday evening, a suicide bomber detonated an explosive in a wedding hall in Kabul, Afghanistan. At least 63 people were killed and more than 180 injured. . .

The Associated Press quotes a man named Amanullah, whose son was killed in the attack, and his body severely disfigured: “I wish I could find the pieces of my son’s body and put them as one piece into the grave.”

Ashraf Ghani, president of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, sent out several tweets condemning the attack, offering condolences to the wounded and their families, and assigning a portion of the blame to the Taliban:

However, according to CNN, the area in Kabul in which the bombing took place is populated by many in the Shiite Hazara minority, and the Islamic State, a Sunni terrorist organization, has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Witness Claims He Saw CNN Anchor Sexually Assault Man

The sexual assault allegations that surfaced last week against CNN’s Don Lemon appear to be gaining more credibility as the alleged victim’s boss has come forward claiming that he witnessed the incident. . .

Now, George Gounelas, who was [victim Dustin] Hice’s boss at the time, has come forward and corroborated the allegations that his former employee has made against the CNN host.

“Dustin worked for me as a bartender [and] we went out after work one night. We were standing there and he said, ‘Hey, that’s Don Lemon,'” Gounelas told Fox News. “Murf’s is a place you go to drink after you’ve been out drinking. We had just gotten off of work. So that’s why we ended up there, because we worked in the restaurant business. So by the time everything is done, we can only hit a late-night spot.” . . .

Gounelas told Fox News that Lemon appeared to be drunk and that he said something to Hice that was “along the lines of ‘Do you like me? Is that why you’re bothering me, because you wanna f*** me?'”

“He put his hands down his pants, inside his board shorts, grabbed his [genitals], and then came out with two fingers and, like, clipped Dustin’s nose up and down with two fingers asking ‘do you like p**** or d***?'” Gounelas told Fox News.

REVEALED: Epstein Express-Shipped a Cement Truck to Pedophile Island Weeks before Arrest, Likely to Coverup Evidence

By Brobible. The Daily Mail is reporting that Epstein ordered a Carmix 5.5 XL concrete mixer truck and paid extra to ensure a speedy delivery to his private Caribbean island. The self-loading cement mixer arrived at the billionaire financier’s island on November 7, 2018, just three weeks before the Miami Herald published their eye-opening exposé that would ultimately rock Epstein’s world and put him in prison. . .

There are people who suggest that Epstein knew that the explosive exposé was coming out and it was only a matter of time before federal authorities would come for him. There are conspiracy theories that say that Epstein ordered that expensive cement mixer to his private island, now often known as “Pedophile Island” or “Orgy Island,” to hide incriminating evidence in the cement. Possibly dump these cement-covered secrets in the Caribbean Sea. . .

A dozen FBI agents raided Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse last week and seized “hundreds and perhaps thousands” of photographs of nude underage girls according to federal prosecutors.

Not Just a Cement Truck, Epstein Also Shipped Himself Shredder, Tile and Carpet Extractor When Things Started Getting Hot

By Ryan Grim. JEFFREY EPSTEIN SHIPPED a shredder from the U.S. Virgin Islands to his Palm Beach home in July 2008, shortly after reaching a non-prosecution agreement with then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, maritime records show. Then, in March of this year, shortly after a Florida federal judge invalidated that agreement, Epstein shipped a tile and carpet extractor from the Virgin Islands to his Manhattan townhouse, the records show. . .

A key challenge investigators faced when first targeting Epstein in the mid-2000s was an inability to obtain evidence through subpoena. A 2005 search of Epstein’s Palm Beach home came up empty in its quest for computers that investigators suspected contained critical evidence connected to his alleged sexual abuse of young girls.

In 2007, a federal grand jury subpoenaed the computers. That August, Acosta, who is now Donald Trump’s labor secretary, entered into plea agreement discussions with Epstein. Because of those talks, a motion to compel production of Epstein’s computers was delayed, according to the Miami Herald. Epstein held out, however, resisting the deal because it would require him to register as a sex offender. The FBI continued investigating and in March 2008, according to the Miami Herald, preparations were being made to take the case to a new federal grand jury.

That would prove unnecessary, as Epstein agreed to a deal with Acosta. Without notifying the 32 identified victims, the federal government reached a non-prosecution agreement with Epstein in exchange for his guilty plea in state court to a minor offense. He pleaded guilty on June 30. (Read more from, “It wasn’t just the cement truck,” HERE)

Jeffrey Epstein Shipped $100k Cement Truck to ‘Pedophile Island’ Three Weeks before Damning Expose Was Released, Paying for Machine up Front so It Would Arrive Quicker, as Experts Say He Could Have ‘Literally Covered up Evidence’

By Daily Mail. Jeffrey Epstein had a $100,000 cement truck shipped express to his Caribbean island three weeks before an expose was published which led to his arrest, DailyMailTV can exclusively reveal.

The pedophile, who was found dead by apparent suicide on Saturday while awaiting trial for sex trafficking, got the Carmix 5.5 XL self loading concrete mixer delivered to Little St. James on November 7 last year.

Epstein was in such a hurry that he paid for the machine up front so it would arrive sooner – even though it meant being responsible if it got damaged in transit. . .

Shipping experts told DailyMailTV that the possibility that it was ‘used to literally cover up evidence cannot be discounted’.

Here’s How Greenland Responded to President Trump Wanting U.S. to Buy

Greenland dismissed President Trump’s reported intentions of purchasing the world’s biggest island, saying it was “open for business, not for sale.”

A report in The Wall Street Journal claimed that Trump has expressed interest in acquiring Greenland, an autonomous Danish territory, for the U.S.

White House sources told the Journal that Trump asked his advisers about acquiring the island during “meetings, dinners, and passing conversations” because of Greenland’s “abundant resources and geopolitical importance.” . . .

“We have a good cooperation with USA, and we see it as an expression of greater interest in investing in our country and the possibilities we offer,” the island’s government said on its website. “Of course, Greenland is not for sale.” . . .

“Greenland is rich in valuable resources such as minerals, the purest water and ice, fish stocks, seafood, renewable energy and is a new frontier for adventure tourism,” the ministry said in a tweet Friday. “We’re open for business, not for sale.”

Obama Warned Biden about Presidential Bid: ‘You Don’t Have to Do This, Joe’

Former President Barack Obama reportedly wasn’t particularly sold on the idea of Joe Biden, his vice president for eight years, mounting his own bid for the White House in 2020.

“You don’t have to do this, Joe, you really don’t,” Obama told Biden before the 76-year-old formally launched his campaign in April, according to the New York Times.

“Mr. Biden — who thinks he could have defeated Donald Trump four years ago — responded by telling Mr. Obama he could never forgive himself if he turned down a second shot at Mr. Trump,” the Times reports. . .

Biden famously failed to lock down Obama’s endorsement upon entering the race, though his former boss did issues a statement saying choosing the then-senator as his running mate in 2008 was “one of the best decisions he ever made” and still remain close friends.

Biden, the 2020 Democrat frontrunner among a crowded primary field, has seen his poll numbers after bruising clashes with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) in the first presidential debate over his past remarks about bussing. Notably, former first lady Michelle Obama refused to defend Biden as the former vice president found himself in hot water for his position on busing and his recent praise of segregationists. A series of gaffes by the former vice president has also hurt his standing among voters, reportedly prompting his advisers to discuss possibly scaling back his public appearances to prevent more embarrassing moments.

NYC Jail Staffers Not Cooperating with Epstein Investigation; ‘Madam Maxwell’ Spotted

By Fox News. Personnel at the New York City prison where accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide last week have not been initially cooperative with investigators from the Department of Justice, a federal source told Fox News Friday.

Attorney General William Barr sent two senior DOJ officials to personally visit the Metropolitan Correctional Center and speak with staff from the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) in order to gather information on Epstein’s death after Barr said officials uncovered “serious irregularities” at the jail, a senior DOJ official told Fox News. The officials have been on site since Thursday and the FBI and the Justice Department’s inspector general are investigating conditions at the MCC.

BOP officials from various regional offices have also been sent to the Manhattan facility to lend their expertise and insight. In addition, a separate BOP “After Action Team” went to MCC earlier this week in an effort to examine what happened the night Epstein died. The use of the “After Action Team” is part of BOP protocol whenever a “significant event takes place at a prison.

Jeffrey Epstein’s Alleged Madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, Photographed at California Burger Joint: Report

By Fox News. Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious, alleged madam surfaced Thursday at a California In-N-Out Burger, where a photographer snapped her reading a spy novel while scarfing down a burger and fries.

Ghislaine Maxwell, 57, allegedly provided Epstein with underage sex slaves. Court documents allege Maxwell, who is the daughter of the late, disgraced publishing tycoon Robert Maxwell, also participated in threesomes with Epstein and underage girls, according to multiple women who have come forward in the case. . .

The elusive former associate of Epstein could face criminal prosecution, and is believed to have valuable information about Epstein’s illicit activities. Epstein was found dead in his prison cell early Saturday. Authorities said it appeared he committed suicide, but an autopsy has raised questions about his cause of death.

Maxwell was photographed sitting alone in the outside patio area of a Los Angeles In-N-Out Burger restaurant Thursday. She is seen reading an opened book with a burger and fries on the table in front of her, the Post reported.

Poll: Half of Hispanic Americans Approve of Trump Following ICE Raids

After the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency raided multiple Mississippi food processing plants for hiring illegal alien workers, President Trump’s support among Hispanic voters has remained solid and a record total of black Americans now support him.

Last week, ICE agents conducted the largest workplace raid in more than a decade across seven food processing plants in Mississippi, netting the arrests of 680 illegal aliens. That same day, though, ICE officials said they released about 300 of the illegal workers back into the U.S. on “humanitarian grounds.” More than 200 of the illegal workers had prior criminal records.

The latest Zogby Analytics poll, conducted days after the highly-publicized ICE raids, finds that about 49 percent of Hispanic Americans approve of the job Trump is doing as president. Another 51 percent said they disapprove.

Meanwhile, Trump’s support among black Americans has surged. Nearly three-in-ten black Americans now say they support the job Trump is doing as president — the second consecutive poll showing over a quarter of black Americans support Trump. About seven-in-ten black Americans said they disapprove of Trump.

Since the raids, the food processing plants have been forced to hold job fairs in the area, potentially increasing wages and bettering working conditions to attract and compete for American workers rather than relying on an underclass of exploited illegal workers. One potential worker said the processing plant was offering $12 an hour, but he would like to negotiate a salary of $15 an hour.

Medical Examiner Reveals Ruling on the Death of Jeffrey Epstein, Lawyers Vow to Conduct Own Investigation

By The Blaze. The New York City chief medical examiner said on Friday that they had concluded Jeffrey Epstein committed suicide in his jail cell, in support of the official account of his death. . .

The ruling comes six days after Epstein was found unresponsive in his Manhattan jail cell.

He reportedly tied the bedsheet around his neck with the other end tied to the top bunk of the bed in the cell. He got on his knees and leaned down with enough force to break several bones in his neck.

Epstein was charged with several counts of underage sex trafficking, and the case was widely believed to involve powerful and wealthy people. (Read more from “Medical Examiner Reveals Ruling on the Death of Jeffrey Epstein” HERE)

Jeffrey Epstein Autopsy Results ‘Show’ He Hanged Himself in Suicide

By The New York Times. The New York City medical examiner said on Friday that Jeffrey Epstein’s death in a federal jail cell was a suicide, confirming he had hanged himself. . .

But the chief medical examiner in New York City, Dr. Barbara Sampson, ruled out foul play. She released a terse statement saying that, after an autopsy and a “careful review of all investigative information,” she had determined the cause of Mr. Epstein’s death was “hanging” and the manner was “suicide.”

Three of Mr. Epstein’s lawyers, Martin G. Weinberg, Reid Weingarten and Michael Miller, challenged the findings and vowed to conduct their own investigation. (Read more from “Jeffrey Epstein Autopsy Results Show He Hanged Himself in Suicide” HERE)
